It’s time to check out this world class destination and Colombia’s most popular tourist city for yourself? The New York Times calls Colombia one of the best places for tourism, drawing more arrivals than any other Latin American country. Based on beauty, culture, affordability and safety. Budget Travel ranks Colombia as one of the top ten ‘must see’ destinations for 2011. MSNBC’s Destination Travel states that Colombia is not only safe, but that it has mass tourist appeal. Frommer’s votes Cartagena among the world’s 12 best travel destinations. Lonely Planet says that Colombia is back, is safe to visit and travelers are quickly discovering what they’ve been missing. Cartagena Colombia is back as place to visit or to buy a property and retire.

While Cartagena’s historic ‘Walled City’ is Colombia’s main tourist attraction and culture center, and an extraordinary place to live and invest, it is the tourist and beach sector of Bocagrande with its modern skyline, that is about to embark on another major renaissance of its own! As testament to the country’s commitment to tourism, within a nine block stretch along the Caribbean beach front (malecon), five major new hotels have begun construction, or soon to start, including two shopping centers. To the north between 12th and 13th Streets, the Hyatt Regency Hotel with the Washington Plaza shopping mall with 80 locals and 250 hotel rooms and 230 apartments, comprised of 3 towers of 34 floors each. Next in line will be the new Marriott Hotel with its 278 rooms. A couple blocks further the Sheraton Hotel / Cartagena Ocean Tower complex with 276 suites, has started construction. A couple blocks down the beach, the Spanish chain, Iberostar Hotel will commence construction early 2012 on its 60 story structure. The next block, already under construction, the InterContinental Hotel, 280 rooms, will be one of the anchors of a 215,000 square foot mixed use real estate development that includes another shopping mall with upscale shops, large casino, convention center facilities, movie theaters and restaurants….located on the corner Ave. San Martin and 5th Street, fronting the beachfront. One can only imagine what this will mean for investment potential and property values of all real estate for sale in the area over the next few years?

NOW is definitely the time to come to Cartagena for a visit and consider if it’s right for you. As a wonderful vacation destination, or an ideal place for retirement, for all, or part of the year, or simply a great property investment opportunity?

The CFAR team understand very well how important it is when traveling to a foreign country and considering purchasing real estate to have someone they can relate to, who speaks their language, someone knowledgeable, with experience (over 35 years of real estate sales experience in many different countries), whom they can trust to find them a good value, and help them with the entire property buying process and perhaps most important someone who will be here for them after the closing to look after their property and investment, whether it’s paying bills, doing repairs, property rentals and management, or renovation services?
